22 charged in NY identity fraud ring

Authorities announced charges Tuesday against 22 people involved in an alleged identity theft ring.

Seven of them, including two New York City-based employees of the Department of Motor Vehicles, allegedly sold more than 200 New York state driver’s licenses and other identification documents in stolen identities, netting more than $1 million.

In addition, 15 customers who allegedly obtained DMV documents in stolen identities from the ring were charged in separate complaints.
